Th Shekinah Legacy by Gary Lindberg

I won this book from the Member Giveaways at Library Thing.

Normally, I am not a fan of religious fiction, but the book sounded interesting when I entered to win it.  When I started reading this book, I was relieved that it started out with action. The religious parts of this book were extremely well written (though I'm no religious scholar by any means).  I truly enjoyed this book, which was full of action and adventure and for me was a bit of a learning experience.

This is a story of Charlotte, a female news correspondent for a national cable news channel, CCN.  the book starts out with her photographer and herself reporting on stories in a warzone.  They are captured, then rescued by a "guardian angel".  Meanwhile, her teenage son, who has Asberger's syndrome, has recieved a cryptic email from his grandmother, whom he has never met.  To make a long story short, Charlotte and her son team up with Charlotte's estranged father, a religious scholar, and they try to follow the clues left to them in the cryptic message, searching for evidence of Jesus' remains. At the same time, various intelligence agencies and the Vatican are also searching for these remains.

This is an action-packed book, and very informative. Being that I am not very familiar with Bible stories, I assume that the facts contained in the book are true.  Either way, what a great book, of which I would recommend to anyone!
